9spd Dura-Ace shifter stuck=broken?
Well, I decided to dust of a bike I haven't used in some years, to give to my niece. After cleaning it up, I thought I would check/replace cables, so I put it in the stand and started shifting up and down the gears- when the right shifter stuck. I can't get it to shift down or shift up. Well, should I soak it? Could it break so easily? I did search for shifter issues and read a bit about spraying it out then blowing it out, but is it possible to open it up to really clean it or is it toast if it does not un-stick itself. I mean, what do people do if a cable frays inside and binds it up and you can't get the cable out because you can't shift to a point where you can remove the cable. The inner lever only moves a small amount and does not click, the outer lever moves easily but does nothing.
